you a clip. this is president clinton talking to me at the cgi last september about his own dealings with vladimir putin because it seems to me that trust in putin right now is absolutely key. listen to this. >> mr. putin has got -- he's very smart. >> you know him better than most people. >> yeah, i do. >> what was he like behind closed doors away from sort of the public utterances? >> smart and remarkably -- we had a really good, blunt relationship. >> how blunt? >> brutally blunt. >> did putin ever renege on a personal agreement made to you? >> no, he did not. >> behind closed doors he could be trusted. >> he kept his word in all the deals we made. >> i found that fascinating insight into that relationship and into the character of putin. and i remember bill clinton going on to say that what you had to be weary of with putin was making any public pronouncements as the american president or any world leader which exposed to him to any sense of ridicule and embarrassment losing faith with his own people. taking it to the current situation, what should we make about the reality of pu
to tom waiting in clinton, maryland on our line for democrats. good morning. caller: hi. a second on to take your previous colors. one who said something about president obama -- no one listens to him. obama speaks in concert with the house and senate. he doesn't just come out make statements. he represents the american government when he speaks. president putin is going to do what he is going to do and president obama has no control over what he does. there are international obligations that russia has as far as ukraine is concerned. that man is supposed to speak out about these things. as far as what he wants to do as far as working to russia to resolve this problem is another matter. take supposed to opposition or exception to what he feels is a breach of international obligation by russia. thank you very much. thanks to him and his administration we are not the country we used to be."

parallel reading of the situation in ukraine the best versus how the west season. clinton says you cannot blame us for what we are doing because he is telling that the west has legitimacy has all wrong. not oustedkovych was -- the constitution was not respected. they showed the letter at the u.n. yesterday, therefore they have not only legitimacy, but law on their side. legality. they cannot be blamed for what they are doing. secondly, the west is hypocritical, because they also act according to their own national interests and foreign policy premises, and they disguised as an act of international legitimacy. vladimir putin said look at what they did in afghanistan, iraq, and libya. they either interviewed without a international mandate cover or a mandate that they in -- interprovincial widely as to achieve their own specific ambitions of the region. whatd you, this squares vladimir putin said to angela merkel. she told president barack obama that he does not see it the way we will just view the world. >> what cannot be done is for to put with impunity, its soldiers on the ground and --l
the clinton administration and congress last raised the gas tax. that was 21 years ago when gasoline was $1.08 and i wonder if barack had even met michelle and there it remained for 21 years. due to inflation and fuel economy increases, the average cost per mile that the american motorist pays to the federal government for transportation has been cut in half. i went on the budget and the ways and means committee the last eight years in order to deal with this issue, but frankly i'm tired of waiting. i introduced a gas tax increase phased in over three years to fully fund a six-year re-authorization. was pleased to be joined by friends during my bill introduction by the u.s. chamber, the afl-cio, truckers and a.a.a., transit, local government, environmentalists, road builders. i find it hard to say people will say this will be a heavy lift because there's little support for it. when chairman camp offered $150 billion last week in his tax reform bill, what president obama suggested $300 billion, where was their broad base of support? maybe that's why both proposals were called dead on arrival
-year itch. i was there in 1998 and bill clinton defied the odds. these campaigns are going to be very competitive, tough, but at the end of the day i still believe the democrats will retain control of the senate. unfortunately, from a mathematical point of you what you did not make him in college, let me just say, it's tough to take back the house given the gerrymandered nature of the district. democrats have over 1 million more votes and republicans in 2012 and yet we only captured 47% of the seats. we have an opportunity to take back some of the gubernatorial seats. while two-thirds of the american people did not bother to vote in 2010 which is why the tea party took over, i think 2014 will be a year where you see a resurgence of democratic voters going back to the polls to vote. >> ralph, your take on this? since you mentioned the tea party, we have primaries in texas today and tea party candidates is not looking very good. >> right. first of all let me say to those of you are here for the policy conference, thank you for all that you and aipac do every day. i've been working -- [a

important. i think the secretary clinton, , both of saidy this war will not end until there's some way to see if reconciliation is possible. there is a second principle as well, which is, i always felt in -- inme ahead district the time had this responsibility, this idea that if you favor reconciliation is another reason to be in favor of . it is a verya important reason to be in favor of can you -- of continued support for afghan national security forces. are watching carefully how we work our way through these next few months to decide if there'd -- if there will be any pressure. the effect of the military is still really important. the third point seems to me that as you look back, it makes you isnk about it very carefully the end conditions. what is this reconciliation all about? that is about an afghanistan that lives with the rule of law and an afghanistan that supports the rights and responsibilities for all citizens, but particularly women. i think the questions of reconciliation are sure high on the administration's agenda, but the principles remain the same. you asked me to t
this story about monuments clinton needs to be told and why i have been so excited to share it with everybody because it is a story that is near and dear to all our hearts. his book is an interesting book but there is a lot to the story. not with looting of works of art but the damage is done with the appearance of the united states, with people around the world seems that we didn't care about these cultural treasures, some even accuse us of not caring because they were not judeo-christian in nature which was nonsense. wasn't a priority target it should have been because we didn't know about the legacy we inherited from world war ii. >> host: i know this isn't your area of expertise the we're coming upon hundred anniversary of world war i. was there any effort or wide scale looting in world war i? >> guest: there was certainly damage to cultural treasures and i right about that in saving it lee because the monument fine arts and archive section was not the first time this ever been done. actually another of the paradoxes, the first formalized effort to protect works of art was a german effort
clinton said there are problems that need to be fixed with this. on top of that, the worst thing he said in the middle of the surge, everybody knows the war is lost. he never paid the price for that. he won reelection after that. >> he is going to be the party of truth, in the lack of expediting when it comes to finding the truth when it comes to benghazi, i.r.s., as you mentioned. we're going to have issues here. twitter last night, my ipad was dancing on my counter with the reaction to his comments and the stories that are real speak truth. >> you've got to turn that vibrate setting off. >> he's the guy to tell you how. >> tech master. >> go to facebook and twitter this morning. you can weigh in on that and more. first let's go to heather. >> got tough questions for you today before you go. we're getting a list. good morning to you all. hope you're off to a great day. we've got breaking news. flight attendants freaking out when their plane starts filling up with smoke. take a look at this. >> we cannot breathe back here. go! >> boy, that delta flight just landed in oakland, california,
clinton is speaking out on the crisis in ukraine for the first time. buzzfeed is reporting clinton was asked about the situation at a fund-raiser, and according to harry saltzgaver of the "long beach gazette" -- and she talked about how what putin is doing now is similar to what hitler did, providing the ethnic russians in the crimea region back to russia and that was destabilizing. this reporting has not been verified by nbc news yet so everybody's jumping in on the conversation. >> right. but i think people should read, leaders should read david ignatius "washington post" article this morning talking about scoop jackson and how he responded in 1980 to a similar crisis. and scoop jackson of course was a cold war hawk. he was the hawk's hawk. and he said in times like these you need to guard your words a bit more carefully. and i think comparing vladimir putin to adolph hitler or to what happened in 1937, 1938 -- >> i think it shows a lack of discipline. >> again, is a bit unfortunate and if she did say that, hillary is the neocon's neocon. >> keep in mind she was in the position o
the clinton administration 20 years ago with respect to the balkansment massive human suffering, in that case it was genocide. more three years the world looked away, then it started to get out of of control. there's people here who know the story much better than i do, but then finally after three years, you know, clinton decided to get involved and to his credit, you know, no one is dying in boss any ca today. now, it's far from a perfect situation, and one can sort of look back, and i personally have sort of a lot of criticism of the dayton plan, but one of good things that happened because of u.s. leadership was that part of the world was turned around. and so, and the plan that was put in place was a political solution. it involved military intervention, but with it also had a political arrangement, you know, integrated within the entire package. so i think if syria is going to be turned around, we need something similar. but none of that, of course, will happen unless there is leadership that can only come from this country. >> the worst part, the worst group among the extremists is isi
a member of the g-8 since the days when yeltsin and bill clinton were first negotiating that entrance. that is not just canceling a g-8 meeting. what he was talking about was kicking russia out of the g-8 because it's not a democracy if it invades another country. >> well, there's a number of problems with that. first of all, there are some reports the europeans as are often the case may not be as willing to be as hard line on these things as the united states is and keeping that economic coalition together will be a challenge. second, we know putin has a lot of give and leeway in the short term. anybody can spend that much on the olympics has access to the ability to paper over any short term economic hit he takes. and third, of course, the guy plays to nationalism, by kicking him out of the g-9 or putting economic limits on travel and banking and other things, the more he's going to initially feel like that's an advantage for him to rally support. long-term those things are effective. short term they may make him think twice but i don't think they change his behavior which is more a
democratic commander in chief in a while. they also potentially have blow back on hillary clinton. as secretary of state hillary clinton was really the face of the so-called russian reset. so it seems to me that republicans are sort of going after her ability to have clear-eyed strong leadership. back in 2008 her strongest ad was that memorable what are you going to do at 3:00 a.m. who do you want picking up the phone when there's an international crises. it seems like there's also an attempt to pin some of the problems with russia on her and make that less of an appealing selling point for her in 2016. >> not just russia and the infamous mislabelled reset button but the notion of the obama administration. conservatives i'm sure would find it ridiculous to the point of insane for me to say that the president has been a pretty successful in the role of commander in chief, but really he has been. the biggest block that he's got in terms of the global chess match i think is what happened last year with syria, the drawing of the red line and the fact that it really took putin in a way
red lines ever since we began to move nato toward russia in the 1990s. clinton began it. bush continued it. obama rhetorically has continued it. the ultimate red line, and unlike perhaps obama, putin really believes in red lines, was ukraine. what putin saw happening in ukraine, for him, and we can argue whether it was or isn't, it was a direct threat to russian national security in the form of crimea. and so he reacted. >> why would steven hadley, who is a big shot in the bush administration be now pushing for nato membership for ukraine? which as i said in the opening would mean we would have to fight the russians personally and directly if they interfered in ukraine, if that were the case. if we put them in nato, then we're all the way on the front lines ourselves. why would this country want to bring our front all the way to the border between ukraine and russia? what would be the national interest in doing that? >> i have to make a generalization. what we're witnessing in this crisis in ukraine, and essentially, it's moving the old metaphorical curtain in berlin right to
tenet, first appointed to the position by president bill clinton and kept on at the agency when george bush became president. though james traficant was right when he listed all of those things that the cia missed over time, things they did not see coming that day learned about by watching cnf like the rest of us, once those things had already happened, james traficant was right about the cia not seeing any of that stuff coming. it was george tenet whose nomination james traficant was opposing. who ultimately personified the cia's modern failure. >> george tenet sat in the oval office to ask him, how good is the case? the director of the cia said it's a slam dunk, mr. president, it's a slam dunk. >> it was not a slam dunk. it was not a lay-up or free throw or any other kind of shot in basketball that technically results in a scoring of any points. there were in weapons of mass destruction in iraq. the bush administration including vice president cheney wanted the cia to say that there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq so the cia said that, but it was complete bullpucky. they wer
to do with it. she was ambassador to the united nations. and secretary clinton was, quote, exhausted i believe was the rationale given why she wasn't on every sunday morning show. so the fact is that we knew at the time -- susan rice said -- and this is what it really was all about. it was all about a president deption campaign -- presidential campaign and the narrative that bin laden is dead, al qaeda is on the run. because then susan rice, in response to bob schieffer, said, "president obama said when he was running for president that he would refocus our efforts and attentions on al qaeda." and then she said, get this, "we've decimated al qaeda. bin laden is gone. he also said we would end the war in iraq responsibly. we've done that. close quote. is there anybody here who thinks that the war in iraq has been ended responsibly? "he has protected civilians in libya and qadhafi is gone." so, obviously, we have not decimated al qaeda. al qaeda is not on the run. in fact, al qaeda is increasing everywhere across the middle east and north africa. and anybody who believes that when the bl
, clinton decided to get involved and to his credit, you know, no one is dying in bosnia today. it's far from a perfect situation. one can look back and i personally have a lot of criticism of the plan. one of the good things that happened because of u.s. leadership was that part of the world was turned around. the plan put in place was a political solution involved military but a political arrangement none will happen unless there is leadership. leadership that can only come from the country. >> the worse part -- the worse group among the extremist is the isis an this is more than 90% come -- composed of foreign fighters. if at least you get the syrians to agree on a transitional government and steps toward, they can deal with the foreigners among them. it's a big security challenge, but then once they are unified and agreed on a move forward, they can take care of isis. the latest news is already -- that it is falling back from some of the areas which the -- >> yeah. they benefit from the chaos and the insecurity that is, you know, characterizing syria. once there's an alternative in p
offered mupty in exchange for that testimony. mike. >> big news. we'll be covering that. >>> the clinton files are being unfiled. there's an enormous effort to humanize hillary back in the days of the clinton white house. is there still a push to make her media friendly? and will these revelations impact hillary in 2016? joining us now, howard kurtz, host of media buzz here on the fox news channel. good to see pup. >> good morning, mike. >> i guess she was being coached by this mandy grunw aye ld, right? >> among others, yes, one of they are key advisers. one of the documents we found said don't be defensive. the press is obviously watching to see if they can make you uncomfortable or testy. look for opportunities for humor. it's important that people see more sides of you and they often see only in very stern situations your behavior. be careful to be real. wow. how can you teach someone to be real? >> are you kidding me? every politician gets this sort of advice. you can't fake sincerity. there are other memos which hillary clinton is during her husband's presidency in the '90s was tol
strongly. >> a new poll shows that 57% of americans approve of the job that hillary clinton did as secretary of state. 69% see her as tough. despite what we've heard about benghazi and other things, i don't know that this is going to hurt her ultimately. >> 67% of people probably know she flew in a lot of airplanes. it's obviously a very important policy that went on when she was secretary of state, whatever she did or didn't do and it's an important issue but whether it's actually part of the presidential politics, aside from the attacks from certain republicans, i don't think it will be a major factor in how people decide whether she will be president or not. >> very quickly? >> she has a personality, she operates more from the gut on some of these issues than from the brain. she's not de-escalate the way she is. >> thank you for coming in. >>> when we come back, everybody makes mistakes, but "the new york times" is making good on a broop blooper 161 years ago having to did with "12 years a slave." so our business can be on at&t's network for $175 a month? yup. all 5 of you f
land commissioner and john cornyn turning back a tea party challenge. >>> in hillary clinton decides to run in 2016, a new poll finds she may have support from a somewhat unlikely group, republicans. 8% of republicans said there is a good chance they would vote for her. 8%. 17% says there was some chance they would vote for her. 74% says, no chance at all. mrs. clinton will speak to cleej students at an event at ucla today. >>> a woman was killed in a huge gas leak and explosion in new jersey. they were unable to identify the woman found near a car. seven other people were injured in the accident. dozens of homes were damaged. >>> so an asteroid is on the way and it's going to pass closer to earth than the moon. it's going to happen today around 4:00 p.m. eastern. experts say it poses no threat. it will get no closer than some 200,000 miles away. you will not be able to see it probably because the asteroid would be too dark to view correctly. does it make a sound if you do not see it? >> is that the age-old -- >> something like that. i think it does make a sound. except the space thi
in the front row. and after that speech, our then secretary of state, hillary clinton, made the statement that mubarak needs to be gone yesterday, he needs to be gone yesterday. the egyptian people didn't understand why it appeared to them that the new administration was supporting the muslim brotherhood opposing mubarak and implying that the leader of the muslim brotherhood should come to power. and as they demonstrated in the streets, mubarak was pushed out and into elected office -- was the leader of the miami brotherhood. and it is incompetence in the government and each move was that they wouldn't some another election and the individual ights they had was going to be diminished. and the 83 million egyptians, of which 5.6 million voted for morsi as president and he did an incompetent job and as the economy went into shambles. we were better off under mubarak, they said. on june 30 of last summer, the egyptian people emerged into the streets and out of 83 million egyptians, 30 million to 33 million came to the strees to put st to remove morsi and in a government of the people. and jun
the controversial bill and we'll learn how the bill is the exact language of the bill that bill clinton signed and was passed unanimously in the house and 97-3 in the senate back in 1993. it's a real big controversy over a very, very small issue. >> fascinating. well, we look forward to seeing you tonight, and as always we thank you for your insights. always a pleasure to have uf, sir. >> thank you, uma. always great to be here. >>> we want to hear from you at home. does the u.s. have any clout left when it comes to issuing so-called red lines to world leaders? tweet us your answers to us and i will read some of your responses later in our show. >>> now, turning to another story that continues to raise concerns here about our military and its future in afghanistan, with talk of a drawdown of troops by the end of the year, the u.s. is still locked in a battle with afghan president hamid karzai over what the postwar would look like, and following closely is al qaeda's leader in afghanistan saying he's already layving the groundwork to relaunch his organization as soon as the nato forces leave. j
ambassador, can you tell us what prompted the clinton administration to want to have these reports produced and what was the outcome of the reports click here i done an enormous service in his book that i want to try to put it in an even broader context. and that is is a great job you do not only to the monument to the united states army. and the united states of america. contrast this enormous effort to the cultural property to get it returned to its rightful owners. with the action of the soviet union coming from the east to berlin, and they were intent on doing just the opposite, stripping germany, stripping its museums of everything that they could. it was movable and taking it back to russia as the competition for the enormous losses. so here we are doing exactly the opposite of trying to preserve and get it back to its original owners when the soviets are trying to compensate themselves for their losses. with respect to the report, we had lawsuits being brought against the swiss banks and we began to realize there was a broad story then the amount put in the swiss banks by victims. an
boss, hillary clinton, used to say you don't get into an argument with your banker. i think in the context of germany they would say you don't get into an argument with your utility company. so i think there may be some opportunities on the financial side but crossing over into the energy side, you know, putin's energy card may not be as potent as it once was. there's a far more global and diversified energy market out there. but germany in particular does depend heavily, 30% of its gas imports come from russia. >> would it be important to the russians if the g-7 considered -- well, if the g8 considered becoming the g-7 again? if they considered ejecting russia from that international body? >> i think in the context of angela merkel she's one of the european leaders if not the european leader that has the ability to talk to putin. i think she's trying to potentially have -- be a channel to try to talk putin down from the ledge that he finds himself on. so that may be one tactic, where she's -- you know, she's looking at perhaps, you know, canceling the g8 meeting but not at
diplomatic troubleshooter in the u.s. government. he was the clinton and george w. bush administration's special envoy for afghanistan, kosovo, bosnia, haiti, and somalia. all the global garden spots, he hit them all. he, his work has involved him intimately in the withdrawal of u.s. forces from somalia. the american-led multilateral intervention in haiti, stabilization and reconstruction of bosnia and the nato intervention in kosovo. he is truly "a man for all seasons" and is a good friend. after september 11th, 2001, ambassador dobbins was appointed as the bush administration's representative to the afghan opposition with the task of putting together a broadly-based successor to the ousted taliban regime. he represented the united states at the bonn conference that established a new afghan government an on december 16th, 2001, he raised the flag over the newly reopened u.s. embassy in kabul. i can't think of a better person to be entrusted with guiding u.s. policy through the challenges and opportunities of the political inand security transition in in afghanistan. ambassador dobbins
years, there was a cutting of taxing during clinton and the republicans worked together. this president is not doing that. the budget does not represent what i would like to see. our kids and grandkids will pay for this. i trillion dollars in the budget. 90% of the current federal budget that could be cut out i mean thecaller: revenue that we bring in, 10% should be the maximum that we have on any kind of budget. you mentioned education spending. here is what reuters says will be in the budget. obama will renew his call for universal pre-kindergarten and expanding the head start program. your thoughts on those proposals? caller: if you have ever looked to education, it says when kids are younger they need to do more experimental things been in the classroom. the problem with younger kids when they are in lower economics, they need to be raised properly. a lot of the major problems we find with kids that come from low income families is that they do not understand even the basic alphabet. those things are great for them to be trained. once they come to the classroom him if they have been
. the problem is other administrations including the bush administration and the clinton administration did not include turn backs at the border as a part of their deportation numbers. so to say that you're setting records when comparing oranges and oranges is simply not accurate. if you look at interior deportations, they are down 40% since 2009. the you agree with that, generally speaking? you may need to check that i realize, but i look at the figures and they are down 40%. so for this administration to say it's breaking records and removing individuals, is simply not accurate. if you any comment on that you're welcome to make it. >> i would have to look at the numbers myself. my understanding, which could be wrong, is that consistent with prior administrations we have be ported the overall numbers, but that with respect to the last report, we broke out within that overall number the number of those who were border arrests. >> again, the problem with this administration is that there including the turn backs and the removals by the border patrol at the border, and previous administration
to years later. it was signed by president clinton and became law 20 years ago. i want to encourage everybody in the future that is working on this important issue, and it is important to include all sales in the background checks and you have just heard the reasons by, several examples of the internet and gun shows. i want to encourage everybody that just because there is public outcry doesn't mean we will get the bill passed. it takes work, time, and it takes persistance and we will will again. it will be a proud day. and i am going to come back the day it passes and i promise i will not leave until then. [ applause ] >> and jim wanted me to give everybody a big hello. he is sorry he could not be here. but it is hard for him to travel anymore. for those of you who helped us, thank you so very much. for those of you on the brady staff, dan, president and everybody else working on it, i see they have got the same excitement so we are going to win and we are going to finish the job. thank you.
